About the Epson ET-2400 for Sublimation
The Epson ET-2400 is a low cost inkjet printer that was released in October 2022 and comes in black. It’s an Ecotank model so it is the easiest model to convert for sublimation (way easier than the WorkForce models).
It’s capable of printing up to 8.5 x 14-inches so if you want sublimation prints wider than 8.5 inches, then consider a Wide Format Epson To Convert For Sublimation.
